L’Eixample • time to momo


" Modernist residential neighborhood L’Eixample is like an amazing open-air museum. Architecture lovers won't believe what they see. "

Annebeth Vis, our local from time to momo Barcelona

The L'Eixample neighborhood is the birthplace of Catalan Modernisme. This is where you'll find the Sagrada Família and other famous buildings designed by architect Antoni Gaudí and his fellow contemporary artists. The neighborhood dates back to the turn of the nineteenth century, and was designed by urban planner Ildefons Cerdà as a new residential area. L’Eixample is characterized by its elegant avenues, spacious streets, luxury stores, and upscale restaurants and clubs. It is divided into Eixample Esquerra (left) and Eixample Dreta (right), and separated by the upscale Passeig de Gràcia, the most expensive street in Spain.
